The popular American science educator Bill Nye the Science Guy discusses importance of having an insatiable curiosity in this exploration keynote. According to Nye, the prevention of exploration demonstrates laziness and this problematic attitude could prevent the development of humans. Nye believes by continuing space exploration there will be a “trickle-up” effect with a country’s economy. The reason behind this is because when well-educated people are apparent in society there is a rise in the level of intellectual achievement for everyone.
Plus, the more discoveries made by the human species expands the amount the possibilities for what will be discovered. This concept may be troubling for some, Nye believes it is actually very exciting specifically for scientists who are inspired by the fact that there will always be something to find.
